A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Four Mile Point Preserve – 7 May 2009
By Mary T. Hoffman

Recently we hiked through Four Mile Point Preserve located in Coxsackie, New York, which is a short distance from our home. Even though we’ve lived here nearly thirty years, we had never been to this nature preserve on the Hudson River. So, on April 30th we decided to take a look at it and we were so pleased with what we saw, that we visited it again on May 4th.
